Former world number one Tiger Woods, who has been recovering from serious leg injuries in a car accident in 2021,

The 15-time major winner, second only to Jack Nicklaus' record 18 on the all-time list, fell seven spots below his previous worst mark,

which came in 2017 after back surgery. Woods spent a record 683 weeks at the top of the world rankings but slumped after suffering numerous back and leg injuries.

Woods delighted fans last weekend by playing his nine-hole, par-3 course, The Hay at Pebble Beach,

posting on social media to show off his putting and driving skills and walking the hilly terrain. Woods, who shares the all-time record for 82 PGA Tour triumphs with Sam Snead,

made only a limited comeback since suffering leg injuries in a one-car accident in Southern California in February 2021 that left him hospitalized.

He returned to competition last April at the Masters after a 14-month break and finished 47th after 72 holes at Augusta National.

The 46-year-old icon retired after three rounds at the PGA Championship at Southern Hills in May and in his last start in July at St. Andrews.
